Assembly and finishing

Make the ganache and syrup and set aside.
Prepare the cake mix and put 200g into each mold (which you have  
greased in advance with beurre manié and lined with chia seeds).
Cover the molds with a sheet of baking paper and a baking tray so that  
the cakes have a flat top, then bake at 160°C (320°F) for approx.  
16 minutes. Steep each cake in 30g of syrup.
Spread some pre-hardened Yuzu Inspiration between two sheets of confectionery dipping paper.
Before it hardens completely, cut it into 17.5 x 4.5cm rectangles (two per cake). Use a dab of ganache to stick a rectangle of Inspiration onto the cakes.
Use a piping bag with a 10mm plain round nozzle to pipe out 50g of ganache in droplet shapes and put a second Inspiration rectangle in place, pressing down lightly.
Draw a thread of ganache onto the second rectangle so that you can stick down an assortment of candied fruit pieces (see photo).
Finish off with your own Customized Logo Decoration.
